Super simple layout for Day 10. Our Christmas tree has been standing in our house naked since last weekend and we finally decorated it last night.
Today's spread has a 6x8 full page photo on the left and half of a one of the 3x4 pocket pages on the right.
There has been so much talk on the December Daily Facebook group about using the Camera+ app to get a bokeh shot of your Christmas tree that I decided to try it out. I've had this app for a few years on my phone, but never used the macro feature. I'm happy with the results, although it may not technically be considered a "good" bokeh. I found an article on Ken Rockwell photography about the difference between a good bokeh and one that is not so great. According to the screen shot below, the results I got with my phone would be considered "poor bokeh":
You can definitely see a ring in my bokeh. So to soften it a bit, I edited the photo within the Camera+ App using the blur tool. It's not perfect, but I love the effect of bokeh!
The "twinkle twinkle" embellishment is from Ali's Main Kit. I attached it to the front of the page protector with Super Tacky Tape.
Chris snapped a photo of me decorating the tree (I trained him well). I edited it in Photoshop using RadLab plug-in. The little banner is from one of Ali's previous December Daily kits. I used her gold marker to write the number "15" on it. The journal card is from the One Little Bird kit, the gold "10" tag, from the last year's kit (I think) and I used the stamps from the SWDD stamp set.
And that's all she wrote for Day 10 folks! I hope to share today's story (December 11) tomorrow morning, but if not, I will definitely have it posted on Sunday. We have a busy weekend full of Christmas fun! Can't wait to write about it! Have a good one!
